Over 500 people joined Anna McMorrin, the Member of Parliament for Cardiff North, today to send a clear message to Downing Street that their voices will be heard and they want to remain a member of the EU.

Cardiff North voted decisively to Remain in 2016. Three years on the constituency’s resolve has strengthened and people from all backgrounds, walks of life and across the political divide turned out to support Remain and campaign with Anna.

Alongside the MP, speakers addressed the rally, including Wales’ Member of the European Parliament,Jackie Jones, Julie Morgan AM, Rev. Aled Edwards and Chair of Wales for Europe, Geraint Talfan Davies and Chair of Cardiff for Europe, Helen Wales. All the speakers were united in their message that our democracy, our livelihoods and our communities are under threat and remaining in the EU is the only way to secure a prosperous future for Cardiff North, for Wales and the whole of the UK.

Anna McMorrin said “Boris Johnson is a liar and a con man, who has run scared from scrutiny. To him this is all just a game. He is playing with real lives, the lives of my constituents and their families.

She continued, “We all know how bad a disastrous No Deal would be, leading   to medicine and food shortages and putting jobs at risk.

“But most of all, I want our children to group up in an open, inclusive and internationalist world, not a world of hatred, division and damaging populism.

“What we need now is to put this back to the people for a final say and I will be your voice for Remain in Cardiff North. “

Jackie Jones MEP said, “Every day in Brussels we are fighting very hard to make a positive case for remaining in the EU. I want a final say on the Brexit deal. The best deal is the one we already have, and I will be campaigning for Remain.”
Geraint Talfan Davies Chair of Wales for Europe said, “In voting to leave the EU we kicked the wrong cat, we need to look at ourselves to sort our own problems, not blame them on Europe.”
